We received such an amazing response to Monica's microproject, all of Africa SOMA has been blown away by the compassion and genorosity of donors such as yourself. We have great faith in Monica as she moves forward on her path towards becoming a doctor and it was so wonderful to see the same faith reflected back by our donors.
Monica is nearing the end of her final year of high school. While she works hard at studying for final exams it is reassuring to know money is not something she will need to stress about, allowing her full focus to be poured into her work.
Although Africa SOMA currently has two interns, Brooke and Helen, working on the ground in Elangata Wuas they were unfortunately unable to meet up with Monica since she attends a high school outside of the community and was so focused on her studies while they were there that she did not have time to come home for a visit. Regardless, she wanted to make sure the message was passed along to all of the donors like yourself for your generous contributions and support.
On behalf of Africa SOMA I would like to thank you for your support. Our work cannot happen without people like you not only believing in our work, but putting down some of your own hard earned money as token of support. As you may know education is one of the most consistant methods to create greater health, social mobility, climate change resilence and empowerment for underpriviledged youth. Increased education of youth also has the wonderful bonus of creating a positive ripple effect through communities such as Elangata Wuas.
On behalf of Monica, the Elangata Wuas Community and Africa SOMA's Team - Thank you.
